Hosting International Staff

J-Camp is proud to bring international counselors from Israel! 

Each year, these staff play a vital role working with the J-Camp team to provide support in learning Jewish culture. The counselors (Shlichim) work primarily with the Tayasim Hebrew Immersion program bringing an authentic Jewish experience through dance, sports, Jewish values and more.

The summer Shlichim staff come to America with a desire to experience our culture while creating meaningful relationships with not only the campers but also the families that host them. Each of our Shlichim staff requires housing for the entire duration of summer camp. Hosts that provide housing for four or more weeks receive a $1,000 credit towards J-Camp. If you do not have school-age children, you may still host and apply the credit to the OFJCC gym or preschool. 

If you are interested in sharing your home this summer, please contact the Director of Youth and Teens, Dave Rosenfeld, by emailing at  or calling (650) 223-8607 or email .

Don't have space to host? Help us find homes for these great staff members by sharing this information with your friends or on social media!
